2. Choose a doctor and Thailand hospital you feel comfortable with.
It is most important for you to choose the hospital (or clinic) and physician (or surgeon) that you feel comfortable undergoing medical treatment with. Patients have the right to ask questions about the treatments they are considering, especially regarding the competency of the physician and potential alternatives or complications. It is important to get accurate information not only about the hospital facilities and the physician who will perform the treatment but also the costs involved and the time frame for scheduling your treatment and recovery process. Different medical service providers have different policies regarding the length of stay for particular medical procedures, depending on the potential complications for such procedures. It is advisable for you to be under medical supervision for as long as necessary to ensure that potential complications are no longer a threat to your health. Medical tourism travel agents can provide you with 3rd party opinions and assurances regarding professionalism, skill, and the credentials of different doctors and hospitals. It is of utmost importance for you to put your mind at ease and feel confident about your decision to undergo medical treatment in a Thailand hospital. Featured Hospitals...
3. Make an appointment.
Doctor/medical appointments for initial check-up and/or follow-up procedure should be scheduled during normal operating hours between 8:00 am - 6:00 pm, with off-hours services offered by larger private hospitals. Some private hospitals now feature real-time online booking, while others continue to rely on call center/telephone for scheduling appointments. Depending on the state of your health and medical procedures you are considering, it is advisable to confirm doctor/hospital appointment several weeks to several months in advance to guarantee you receive treatment from a doctor/specialist of your choice.
